address issues of law plus other handouts, as needed. We have updated
these texts to be current to May, 2012. This is especially important now
since the Department of Agriculture, Division of Consumer Services, has
taken over the Board of Professional Surveyors & Mappers from the
Department of Business & Professional Regulation. In fact, the rules
regulating the Board have now changed from 61G-17, F.A.C. to 5J-17,
F.A.C. If you have your copy of the text with you at the Retreat, you
will not be required to purchase another set. We’ll take major
credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) as well
as checks and cash at the Retreat. To obtain your text materials in
advance of the Retreat, please send your $95.00 payment ($75.00 for the
text plus $20.00 shipping and handling) to:
